He went on to say that the initiatives are meant to support the communities of the Nigerian Army commanders who have attained the prestigious rank of Major General via their hard work and dedication to the country.

“I am quite happy to see that Jigawa State has Major General Abdulkadir Mohammed, a highly esteemed senior officer, at its disposal. It is relevant to remember that we just completed another crucial project in Kazaure LGA under Maj. Gen. Kazaure’s leadership last month, and we are here in Dutse today to commission yet another project.
